Monographs Details: Vaccinium floribundum var. marginatum (Dunal) Sleumer
Authority: Smith, Albert C. 1952. Plants collected in Ecuador by W. H. camp. Vaceiniaceae. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 8 (1): 41-85.
Description:Distribution and Ecology - Cañar: Northeast of Azogues, F. Prieto P-153. Azuay: Paramo de Tinajillas and surrounding chaparral and forests, south of Cuenca, Camp E-485. Cordillera de Alpachaca, Camp E-284 (NY only).
Distribution and Ecology - The specimens are from elevations of 9,800 to 11,000 ft., and the plant is noted as a spreading or arching shrub to 0.2 m., with a pink corolla and black fruit. This variety, characterized by having its leaf-blades ovate and broadest toward the base, hardly seems worthy of separation from the typical variety; however, our specimens agree well with those from Ecuador cited by Sleumer.
